GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) The cost of a new Grand Forks airport terminal could top the original $20 million projection but city officials say they want it done right.

Airport director Steve Johnson said officials had to make cuts to stay in the $20 million range because of rising construction costs. He said construction is tentatively set to start in June and finish in September 2011.

Johnson asked the city to guarantee $4.1 million in bonds for the project. The county also would have to agree.

The remaining $15.9 million would come from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The existing terminal, built in 1964, has problems with mold and a leaky roof and blocks the line of sight between the north-south and east-west runways.
